Abstract

An inbred line of popcorn and a line that contained teosinte germ plasm were compared with respect to the inflorescences of the numerous tillers produced by plants of these lines. In both lines, all terminal and axillary apices of the tillers initiated inflorescences. No axillary tassels were found on the tillers of either line. On a popcorn tiller, a terminal inflorescence was either a tassel, a tassel that bore a few scattered kernels, an ear, or an ear that had basal tassel branches. Every tiller of the "teosinte-contaminated" corn had a terminal tassel.
